Summary: Signed by "Veritas," the Roman goddess of truth, this broadside is an anonymous declaration of support for Mosquera in his argument with Archbishop Antonio Herrán over the removal of the Catholic Church's right to Tuición, especially focus on Article 1 of the April 23 law.
Historical Notes: At the time of writing, President Tomás C. Mosquera ran an anticlerical campaign as part of his efforts to distance New Granada from its colonial past by severing the connections between church and state. These measures including dismantling the Catholic Church's taxation system which included tuition, which would decrease the Church's financial power. Mosquera who led rebel forces during Liberal Civl War (1860-1862) came to power by overthrowing the previous Conservative government, which had supported the Catholic Church as a means of maintaining moral order in New Granadian society.
